Rural landscapes: Butchart beauty
TULIPS AND ROSS FOUNTAIN, BUTCHART GARDENS, VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA
This 55-acre National Historic Site is a stunning tourist attraction on Vancouver Island on Canada’s west coast. My wife and I toured it recently and came away pretty stunned at the display of flowers and shrubs (and the roses weren’t even out yet).
I took the Nikon D90 with me, but left the tripod behind and still came up with compositions like this. I used a flash here to fill in the shadows and make the foreground flowers more prominent.
